3 3 1. About Internet Access 1.0 Global 4 s MPLS access solution is to provide all or most of the physical and logical infrastructure to give a customer the ability to transmit MPLS traffic between multi-site locations. 1.1 The product involves one or two Access Services from the customer location to Global 4 s MPLS access platform. 1.2 MPLS Access Services (sections 3.0 and 4.0) MPLS ADSL Max /2+/Annex M MPLS FTTC MPLS EFM MPLS Ethernet 1.3 The service optionally includes Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) to connect that Access Service to the customer s local network or computing facilities. The Managed Device service is defined in Global 4 s Managed Service Definition, which describes Global 4 s device management and support services in more detail. 1.4 Customer Premises Equipment 1.6 If the customer has not purchased CPE services from Global 4, the downstream service boundary for this solution is the Network Termination Unit (NTU) of the circuit at each site, which will typically be rack-mounted. This type of Internet access service is referred to as wires only. 1.7 If the customer has purchased CPE services from Global 4, the downstream service boundary for this solution is the LAN interface of the CPE. This type of Internet access service is referred to as managed. 1.8 Also included is the lease of RIPE-allocated addresses associated with the connectivity system to enable Internet access. The number of IP addresses and whether they are static or dynamic depends on the access service selected 1.9 In general, Global 4 will provide a block of 4 IP addresses (2 usable) for applicable Internet breakout services. Larger blocks may be available on request, but are subject to prevailing RIPE regulations Where necessary (e.g. ADSL services) Global 4 will provide RADIUS authentication services to allow customer CPE to authenticate with the broadband access platform. ZyXEL (various models) DrayTek (various models) Cisco (various models) Juniper (various models) 1.5 The upstream service boundaries are the various physical interconnects between the Global 4 MPLS access platform and network facilities that are part of the upstream MPLS infrastructure, but not under Global 4 s control.
4 4 2. Global 4 s MPLS Access Platform 2.0 The nature of the platform is to enable reliable and high performance IP traffic transfer between Global 4 s customer s access services and the public Internet infrastructure. 2.1 Unless otherwise noted, one of the Access Services is defined as the primary access service and the other as a secondary. The secondary access service is not used in normal operation and is considered as a passive standby. 2.2 The Access Service type determines which circuit is the primary route for traffic to a site. Access Service type precedence is as follows: 2.3 Access Service Availability Monitoring All MPLS access services are polled for availability by Global 4 s automated monitoring system. This occurs at five-minute intervals. If three checks in a row fail, an alarm state is generated. This means the quickest an alarm state will be generated subsequent to an outage will be ten minutes. The worst case is fifteen minutes MPLS access circuits which are bonded using MLPPP or similar, are monitored individually, and the virtual (bonding) interface is also monitored for availability purposes An alarm state will generate a ticket in Global4 s support queue. Optionally it can be used to generate an and/or SMS to the customer. This can be requested from your account manager, or by raising a ticket with Global 4 s Customer Service Team To ensure a prompt response, Global 4 urges customers to telephone Global 4 to report a fault as per the Internet access SLA. 2.4 Access Service Traffic Graphing All MPLS Access Services are polled for traffic load statistics by GLOBAL 4 s automated monitoring system at regular intervals. This interval depends upon the type of access service Traffic data is used to build a traffic profile for each Access Service, which is available, in near real-time, via a portal To obtain a username and password for access to the graphing portal, please make a written request to your account manager, or raise a support ticket with Global4 s Helpdesk To access traffic stats for fixed-line Internet access, please contact the Global 4 Customer Service team. 2.5 Internet Access Traffic Management Global 4 s Internet access platform does not filter traffic, shape it or otherwise interfere with it under normal operations. There are no download limits or restrictions to protocols employed other than those stated in Global 4 s AUP In the event of network traffic that is identified as an attack, Global 4 reserves the right to proactively block traffic as close to the source as possible and then conduct an investigation into the source of the traffic. This will be in partnership with customers (if the attack source is internal to Global 4 s borders) or with other service providers (if the attack source is external to Global 4 s borders).
5 5 3. Access Services, Capacity and Contention 3.1 Access Service General Availability All MPLS Access Services are subject to geographical availability and subject to survey. 3.2 Internet Access Using ADSL MPLS access using ADSL requires an active broadband account supplied by Global 4. Optionally Global 4 can provide the PSTN circuit as well Upstream platform access is provided at the following maximum theoretical data rates: MPLS ADSL Max 800kbps MPLS ADSL 2+ 1Mbps MPLS ADSL Business M 2Mbps MPLS FTTC 2-20 Mbps Downstream platform access is provided at the following maximum theoretical data rates: MPLS ADSL Max 8Mbps MPLS ADSL Mbps MPLS ADSL M 16Mbps MPLS FTTC Mbps For ADSL Max services; An automated Dynamic Line Management (DLM) system establishes a Maximum Stable Rate (MSR) for each line independently. The MSR may be significantly lower than the theoretical maximum because of building infrastructure issues, local copper quality and wire distance from the local exchange Actual synchronisation rates will vary on a day-to-day basis due to external influences like interference. If the synchronisation data rate drops 30% below the MSR, then an unusually poor performance fault can be reported Unacceptable performance thresholds exist for the downstream performance according to the following calculation: Unacceptable downstream performance threshold = 10% of the Synchronisation rate No such performance thresholds exist for upstream data rates, which are generally more predictable than downstream data rates Interleaving adds to circuit latency, but stabilises the access circuit at high data rates. ADSL services have interleaving switched to AUTO by default. The DLM will determine whether interleaving is necessary for any given service during the stabilisation period. The customer may ask Global 4 to switch this on or off, if desired although it is recommended to leave this set to auto Traffic from ADSL 2+ and ADSL M services are given the highest priority. Traffic from Max services is a medium priority. Traffic from all other services is low priority. Priority is only honoured over the broadband access service not the Internet access platform. 3.3 EFM EFM includes 2-20 dedicated copper pairs and involves bonding circuits at a network level, presenting at the customer site as a single copper Ethernet interface It is possible that a survey will identify that additional ancillary charges will need to be paid to complete an installation.
6 Upstream and downstream platform access is provided at a maximum theoretical data rate of 20Mbps EFM services operate at a set maximum bandwidth selected at point of order from a range between 2Mbps and 20Mbps in 2Mbps increments EFM is an uncontended service. Other users of the local exchange do not impact access circuit performance EFM is delivered onto the Global 4 MPLS Access platform using VLANs. customer VLAN tags will not be honoured by the service Ethernet E100/E1000 is an uncontended service. Other users of the local exchange do not impact access circuit performance Ethernet E100/E1000 is delivered onto the GLOBAL 4 Internet Access platform using VLANs. Customer VLAN tags will not be honoured by the service All Ethernet service performance is very sensitive to CPE interface settings, specifically in terms of speed and duplexity. In most cases, the service will be full duplex and the speed hard set. However, this can vary depending on exact delivery parameters. If there is any doubt, please contact Global 4 s helpdesk EFM requires any CPE to be configured with the interface speed specifically set to full duplex, rather than auto EFM is subject to copper quality at the local customer site. It is possible that, during survey, the site will be found to have copper of insufficient quality to support EFM services. In Global 4 s experience, this occurs in around 15% of installations. 3.4 Ethernet Ethernet E includes a dedicated fibre circuit It is possible that a survey will identify that additional ancillary charges will need to be paid to complete an installation Upstream and downstream platform access is provided at a maximum theoretical data rate of 100Mbps (E100) or 1Gbps (E1000) Ethernet E services are tiered. This means that the customer sets the actual data rate to one of the following capacities: E Mbps in 10Mbps steps E Mbps in 100Mbps steps
7 7 4. Access Circuits, Reliability and Fault Resolution 4.1 Access Service General Fault Resolution Faults will be resolved according to the principles and goals detailed in the MPLS access SLA. 4.2 MPLS Access using ADSL Where Global 4 is not the supplier for the PSTN service that the DSL service relies upon; Global 4 is not responsible for resolving faults with the copper local loop from the customer s site to the local exchange Global 4 s design criteria suggest that statistically the mean time between failures (MTBF) of an individual DSL access service is 15 months. 20% of these faults require escalation to the broadband supplier. 80% of faults escalated to a broadband supplier are resolved within 5 days. Global 4 expect a DSL service to be available 99% of the time Root cause of connectivity failure by incident volume: 4.3 EFM Global 4 does not yet have sufficient data to generate meaningful statistics about EFM s general availability. Global 4 s target availability, based on test data, and the fact that Global 4 uses a minimum of two copper pairs to deliver the service, is 99.7%. 4.4 Ethernet GLOBAL 4 s design criteria suggest that statistically the mean time between failures (MTBF) of an individual fixed-line Access Service is 20 months. 90% of these faults require escalation to the circuit provider. Average time to restore service from escalation is five hours. Global 4 expects fixed-line service to be available 99.9% of the time.

10 3 1. Scope of Document & Responsibilities 1.0 This document describes the service level agreement (SLA) for the following products and access services; MPLS ADSL Max /2+/ Annex M MPLS FTTC MPLS EFM MPLS Ethernet 1.1 Brief Description and Responsibilities 1.2 MPLS Access service definition Global 4 s MPLS Access service is defined in a separate service definition document. 1.3 Global 4 s service level operating hours Global 4 s full service levels operate between 08:30am and 17:30pm, Mon Fri. For the management of severity 1 emergency faults (see 2.2) with premium services (see 2.5.1), Global 4 s service levels operate outside of these core support hours, 24x7, using a Duty Support Engineer process. 1.4 Global 4 s responsibilities Global 4 is responsible for: The MPLS Access platform The customer access circuit(s) to the platform (when supplied by Global 4) Provision of a helpdesk for call handling Fault resolution and escalation In addition, for fixed line services: Proactive monitoring / alerting of access availability for managed services Outage alerts by Utilisation stats of access circuits 1.5 Customer responsibilities The customer is responsible for: Completion of the appropriate Order Forms describing the site, location and access requirements Definition of IP addressing on the LAN Definition of an appropriate security policy Notifying Global 4 of any changes to site and contact details Basic troubleshooting Reporting faults with the network Access to sites for fault resolution Adherence to Global 4 s Acceptable Use Policy
11 4 2. Service Level Agreement 2.1 The MPLS Platform target SLA is defined in the table below MPLS Platform Metric 2.2 Incident Severity Incident severity is defined in the table below: Severity Class Description 1 Emergency 2 Major 3 Minor 4 Information Request Target MPLS Platform Availability 99.99% MPLS Platform Packet Loss <0.1% Core MPLS platform SLA excludes the customer access service or any service outside our boundary. MPLS Platform SLA calculation excludes variances attributable to (a) scheduled network maintenance (including emergency) or (b) a Force Majeure event. Because service credits are claimed on a per incident basis, the above measure is for network planning and account review purposes only. Total loss of service e.g. Total circuit or equipment failure Significant degradation of service. Minor degradation of service. E.G. Modification to configuration equipment. Global 4 will initially determine and agree the incident severity with the customer. Global 4 may change the severity during repairs. For example, if an incident of severity 1 is temporarily repaired, then the incident may be reduced to a severity 2. The new classification will determine the course of actions thereon. 2.3 Target Response and Fix Time Diagnosis and Response Times The primary method of reporting emergency and major faults to Global 4 should be by telephone. Faults reported by or via the web portal may not be allocated to a support engineer in an appropriate timescale to provide the desired level of response. For fault reporting instructions, see section 5.0 below Severity By Telephone or Portal 1 30 minutes Inappropriate ( 4 hours) 2 1 hour Inappropriate ( 4 hours) 3 4 hours 4 hours 4 Next working day Next working day The response time clock starts when a ticket is created on Global 4 s system via the mechanisms above.
12 5 2. Service Level Agreement 2.4 Service Restoration Times The service restoration target is the criteria upon which service credits are based (see 4.3). Faults are generally classified as circuit failures (see 2.5), or hardware failures (see 2.6). 2.5 Circuit failures Target restoration times depend on the access technology employed at each site Premium Access services in the premium category; MPLS Ethernet E100/E1000 +N Severity Target Service Restoration 1 4 hours 2 8 hours 3 Next Working Day 4 N/A Enhanced Access services in the enhanced category; MPLS EFM, MPLS ADSL with Enhanced Care Severity Target Service Restoration 1 Next Working Day 2 Three Working Days 3 No Guarantee 4 N/A Access services in the standard category; MPLS ADSL Max /2+/ Annex M, MPLS FTTC. Severity Target Service Restoration 1 Five Working Days 2 Ten Working Days 3 No Guarantee 4 N/A 2.6 Hardware Failures Devices and hardware under a Managed maintenance contract are covered under the Managed SLA. 2.7 Service Restoration Clock The service restoration clock starts when a ticket has been allocated, the customer contacted, a severity assigned and the initial diagnosis work has been completed. Tickets may be left open, post service restoration, for monitoring purposes or when a customer action is pending. Thus the clock stops when the ticket is closed or when a member of Global 4 s Helpdesk informs the customer of service restoration, whichever is sooner. Should a fault be raised outside Global 4 s defined service level operating hours (see 1.3), the measurement of the response and service restoration time will not commence until the start of the next working period.
13 6 2. Service Level Agreement 2.8 Outages and Maintenance Network maintenance will normally be performed outside of service level operating hours (see 1.3). Should maintenance be service affecting, the affected customers will be notified with three working days notice via the nominated contact detailing the work to be carried out and any effect on service. All network maintenance on Global 4 s network is also published on our website. Under exceptional circumstances it may be necessary to perform emergency engineering work without prior notice. In that event, Global 4 will use its best efforts to limit any resultant adverse effects on the customer s service. 2.9 Emergency and Major Fault Escalation Escalation means that more senior support staff will be made aware of the customer s fault and provide additional assurance to the customer. For continuity, the customer s point of contact with Global 4 s Helpdesk. Escalation Path Tier Job role 1 Customer Service Desk 2 Team Leader 3 Director 4 Managing Director 2.10 Call out charge for non Global 4 Faults Fault resolution sometimes means an engineer has to visit a site. If, while the engineer is onsite, the incident is discovered not to be a hardware or circuit failure under Global 4 s control (e.g. the managed device has been unplugged, or there is a fault with customer equipment or facilities), Global 4 reserves the right to pass on any charge incurred in the investigation of the incident. Global 4 will escalate where appropriate severity 1 and 2 incidents using the procedure below. Time before escalation starts Level Premium Enhanced Escalation 3 hours 12 hours 16 hours
14 7 3. Failure to meet Service Levels & Fault Reporting 3.1 Management Escalation Path 3.4 Service level claim conditions When target quality parameters are not met, or when a Customer is dissatisfied, they can use the following management escalation path. Total service credits per month are limited to 100% of the total due in respect of the monthly charges calculated pro-rata for that month. Tier Service restored Within 1 working day of the service restoration target More than one working day behind the services restoration target Job role 1 Account Manager 2 Sales Director 3 Managing Director 3.2 Making a Claim A claim should be made in any month where there are one or more incidences where the agreed service restoration target was not met. A claim should be made via , quoting the Global 4 ticket reference to your Account Manager. The deadline for making a claim is 5 working days after the end of the month for which credit is requested. 3.3 Service credits If, in Global 4 s reasonable opinion, the target time for service restoration for an incident is exceeded (see 3.4), the customer will be entitled to a service credit for the failure according to the following schedule: Service credit 25% pro-rata monthly charge associated with the failed access or hardware service 40% of pro-rata monthly charge associated with the failed access or hardware service The customer has notified Global 4 in writing within 5 working days after the end of the month for which credit is requested. Service credits will be applied as a credit to the Customer s account and, as such, will be deducted from the value of the next invoice. Service credits will not be granted if there is any amount owing by the Customer to Global 4 under this agreement or otherwise and such amount is overdue. 4.0 Reporting a Fault 1. Dial: Be prepared with the following: a. Company name and your name b. Your telephone number c. Site address where the fault is d. Circuit number e. Description of the problem f. What happened prior to the fault? g. How the fault been diagnosed? 3. For severity 3 and 4 incidents, or as an alternative to calling, please END
